Tomas Rincon has completed his move across the city to join Torino on a one-year loan deal.
The Venezuelan midfielder was signed in January from Genoa but was reduced to a bit-part role for the remainder of the year and barely featured as a starter.
Torino confirmed his transfer earlier today in a statement via the clubs official website:
“Torino Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Tomas Eduardo Rincon Hernandez from Juventus Football Club on loan with option to buy.”
Juventus have confirmed the deal as well, confirmed that the deal will net them €3m for the loan with a further €6m option to buy next summer with the option becoming an obligation if he players a certain amount of games.
Torino President Urbano Cairo praised Rincon and the signing in a statement of his own:
“Tomas Rincon is a versatile and complete midfielder who combines technical and physical qualities with personality.
“He’s a hard worker on the pitch and a constant point of reference for his teammates. He knows the pitfalls of Serie A, and is an ambitious and determined lad.
“In addition to his talent, he brings experience and enthusiasm to Torino, so on behalf of the whole club I’m happy to extend the most cordial welcome to Tomas Rincon.
“Work well, and Forza Toro!”
